If Guns is considered 'Hair Metal' then here goes:

Guns and Roses...even though I cannot stand Axl Rose's...anything
Tesla
Hanoi Rocks
Skid Row
Whitesnake
Scorpions
Faster Pussycat
L.A. Guns
Def Leppard

Gosh...IDK...I'll have to do some looking around for one more.

Simply could not add certain obvious ones to any list of mine related to 'Best' bands...regardless of genre.

Default Re: BEST 80s "HAIR METAL BAND" ... Nominations Thread

I think for the most part a lot of bands followed the Hair trend in the 80's, heck even Metallica. So Not because I associate these bands with what people would consider the Hair Metal Bands. My lack of knowledge from music in this trend as I call it. I have to limit my selection.

1. Metallica
2. Motley Crue
3. Megadeth
4. Iron Maiden
5. Slayer
6. Judas Priest

I may not understand what qualifies though completely.

I really liked Judas Priest and Iron Maiden better than almost everything on this list but I don't think they qualify.

I see a lot of lists neglecting Skid Row. You telling me even as a guy, you didn't like Sabastian Bach? haha I heard enough from my wife about him already, but in the end guy has a voice.

Not going to call out anyone in this thread. .... I have my opinion and
everyone else has theirs whether I agree with it or not. I like doing these
tournaments now and then to hear your opinions in the discussions.

For the record there are A LOT of those Hair metal bands I thought that sucked,
and I've seen them a lot on these lists today, but I'm positive if I asked,
there'd be a lot of you guys who thought mine sucked as well.

To Each His Own

Thanks for your nominations

I listed G&R, but I'm having second thoughts. Even though Ax-hole had his hair poofed up with mousse in the first big video 'Welcome to the Jungle', I still just think of them as a straight forward, kick ass rock band, and not a Hair Metal band.

I'll have to post my list. I love hair metal bands. That was my music! However, I am stunned by this list. I had no idea so many people liked Cinderella. They were one of my top two bands from the 80s (the other was Def Leppard - now you know the top 2 on my list).

1. Cinderella
2. Def Leppard
3. Scorpions
4. Guns 'N Roses
5. Poison
6. Bon Jovi
7. Skid Row
8. White Lion
9. KISS
10. Motley Crue

My thoughts on this - Def Leppard is my favorite, Cinderella a close #2. However, Cinderella fits the hair metal band better than DL. I don't like Motley Crue at all. However, I couldn't leave them off the list for the impact they had. KISS doesn't feel like they qualify either since they started in the 70s. However, with their hair, make up, and sound have to put them on this list.

For me, it's not just the sound but the look. For example, you may hate Poison but they did the glam/hair metal look better than anyone with a lot of commercial success.

Me too, but seems like a lot of people disagree with that line of thought.
I saw them more as a morph of Blues based Rock and Heavy Metal. They
just happened to come along in the 80s when Hair Metal was about played
and "Speed Metal" bands like Metalica, Iron Maiden, Megadeath et..
were just kicking in. Never really thought of Guns N Roses as a Hair Band.

I really loved Cinderella's music. It was Hair Metal with a "Bluesy" edge
to it at times. Tom Keifer put everything he had into that band, and literally
ruined his voice doing what he loved to do on stage. Their first 3/4 albums
were just really REALLY good listening. Hell of a live act as well. Saw them
4 times and never saw a bad show by them. My favorite Hair Band by a wide
margin.

I saw then once in 95 at a small club in Raleigh. I was not as big of a fan of their bluesy stuff but that really set them apart. No one had a voice like Keifer. Closest guy to it is Brian Johnson from ACDC. Tom Keifer WAS Cinderella.

While Leppard isn't a hair band, they were huge in the 80s. I hate what has happened to Joe Elliot's voice. However, rest of the band may be the best background/back up singers of any band out there. Those guys (Rick Savage, Phil Collen, Vivian Campbell) are good!

I can see why people would consider them as a "Hair Metal Band". Even
though I don't consider them in the category that by my opinion is Hair
Metal, they had the look, the style and the "attitude" to fit the 80s rock
style to a tee.

They were really young when they formed and started rehearsing in England
and they wanted to make a big splash in the US. .. .I really think they
were just a good English bar band that molded itself to the popular
American Rock of the time. .... When they finally got it , THEY RAN
WITH IT !
I liked their stuff, but to me, I have a hard time calling them a typical
Hair Band, and I just can't see them as a "Serious" rock n roll band either.
Pushed to pick one, I'd call them an R&B Rock band that was heavily
influenced by Glam Rock.
